Responsible business in the community means understanding the social issues with which our business is most closely aligned and putting in place the programmes to address them.
Our community investment strategy is to focus on education and the communities local to our operations. This reflects the skills, expertise and experience we have within the business, presenting opportunities to leverage these alongside financial donations.
The focus of our educational programme is educational disadvantage and attainment. A real and pervasive issue in the markets in which we operate which perpetuates inequality and diminishes opportunity.
We value the benefits that our involvement in the community brings to our business in the areas of learning and development, employee engagement, and Pace's profile in the communities in which we operate.
We have adopted a partnership approach to community investment, recognising the value that our partners bring to understanding and staying abreast of issues and developing and implementing solutions.
Pace has partnered with TeachFirst to support the programme's Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) teachers in Yorkshire and the Humber.
